I've been in Italy for the last 3 weeks taking some time off from the mountains of Kyrgyzstan that I love so dearly before I return to finish up the last little bit of work I have on my project there. I was given an opportunity to jump out of an airplane in Verona. Quite frankly, I've always wanted to try skydiving, but had been on the fence about whether to do it for a long time, because, well, you're jumping out of an airplane after all. But I took the opportunity, and I certainly don't regret it. What a rush. Here are the photos of me screaming my head off at 4000m. (Photo Credit: Skydive Verona, retouch done by me using my iPhone).
